The Clone Categories add-on allows you to clone product categories, with their subcategories and products or without them. While cloning a category, all main information will be cloned like its name, location, description, images, meta data, availability, layouts. Any modifications made by third-party add-ons will not be cloned.
This add-on can be especially useful for those who create complex categories with multiple subcategries. So you won’t have to manually fill in all fields again and again, you can get a copy of an existing category with just a few clicks.
